  • A site that could be so interesting from a historical and cultural point of view. Alas, there are no information panels and no enhancements. Vegetation overfills everything. There is still a small layon to get inside and discover the cells.

  • But too little information about the site itself, well invaded by vegetation. An idea of what the convicts were going through
